I've done it in the past, the key was to have my SIM in the phone, using it, when I made the request. (This was several years ago.) Now, if the phone is not paid for or blacklisted for some other reason, this would not work.
AS long as the phone was originally purchased from us and your account/device meets our requirements, there should be no issue with unlocking your device.
